#RichardsonIs is a new campaign that we are launching to introduce you to some of the great people who work for our company.

This week, #RichardsonIs…Kim, Director of Operations at our Richardson Pioneer Ag Business Centre in Brandon, MB. He also oversees our crop input location in Antler, SK.

Kim explains that his role is really about working with people, including our farm customers, suppliers, and especially our employees. “To put it simply, the role of a DO is to ensure our employees receive the proper support and leadership to succeed in their area of work”.

The two Richardson Pioneer locations that Kim oversees are involved in selling crop inputs such as seed, fertilizer and crop protection products to local farmers, as well as purchasing and receiving grain, and cleaning and loading grain into trucks or rail cars destined for shipment to a processor or for export.

“What I like best about my job is seeing the people that work here look forward to coming into work every day, knowing they have an important role in the success of our business. Also, being a part of a producers’ success is very satisfying.”

Working at Richardson has become somewhat of a family affair for Kim. His son Trevor also works for Richardson Pioneer out of our Swan River, MB location. Growing up in a farming community, Kim said there was never any other profession that offered the same draw due to the long-lasting relationships that stem from his line of work.

When Kim isn’t busy working between his two locations, chances are his six grandsons are keeping him active – that and enjoying leisurely summer rides in his 1970 Camaro with his wife, Sheree.
